Decline and Fall was followed by Rise and Resurrection, both by Yourdon. And both worth reading, though he probably won't tell you anything you don't already know. The premise of Search for Stupidity made me laugh out loud when I read it.
You might also enjoy The Manager Pool, though the managers at amazon.com seem to have supressed this mischevious work.
It's an antipatterns book about management.

Yeah, I actually have the latter book. It wasn't til I got it that I learned for the first book. :-)
Well, I've have to save The Manager Pool for the next round. I think I've got enough at the moment. :-) Thansk for mentioning it to me.

Interestingly, amazon.de suggests to buy this together with ".NET Game Programming" - speaking about imperfect worlds, I guess...

The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
